My Y Story: Gary
Losing the weight, Gaining a life
When Gary retired from the Airforce we transferred to a desk job and began gaining weight. He peaked at 260 pounds. Because of his weight, he also had diabetes, high blood pressure, COPD, and an assortment of other ailments. He knew he had to do something.Gary joined the Y and began exercising, but he wasn’t losing weight. That was until he joined the YMCA Weight Loss Program. The program taught him how to monitor his nutrition to lose weight and live healthy. Gary has now lost 100 pounds and is off most of his medications.
“I believe that if I had not joined the weight loss program at the YMCA , I seriously don’t think I’d be around right now. It’s made a significant difference in my life.”
